This compendium, published by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 2011, provides educators, researchers, and practitioners with a variety of tools to measure a range of bullying experiences. The compendium describes 33 measures that are organized into four sections: bully perpetration only, bully victimization only, being both a bully and a victim, and being a bully, a bystander and/or a victim of bullying situations. Each section begins with a table summarizing each of the assessment tools, including the name and characteristics of the measure, age or target group intended, and reliability and validity information. Measures included in this compendium are provided in full and include measure items, response categories, scoring instructions, and references. A guide to using the compendium and selecting measures is also included.
